Rosalind Franklin

Introduction

Do you know who discovered the structure of D.N.A? It was Rosalind Franklin. Rosalind Franklin was born on July 25, 1920. As a child she was exceptionally smart and by the age of 15 knew she wanted to be a scientist. She received her degree at many different schools and excelled at science.she enrolled at Newman college in 1938 and studied chemistry.

Early Job Life

At Kings college she started to work on the structure of D.N.A. This topic had puzzled scientists. Her work was able to separate patterns that other scientists still didn't understand. She then took an image using x-ray diffraction and crystallography to prove the double helix theory.

The Misplaced Prize

After discovering the image of the double helix, watson and crick stole it. They then built a model of D.N.A.Soon they had discovered the structure of D.N.A. later, rosalind franklin died of cancer at the age of 38. Watson and crick won a nobel prize

conclusion

Rosalind franklin was an amazing scientist. She took the first image of D.N.A and learned x-ray diffraction and crystallography. She should've won a nobel prize but watson and crick stole her image. Rosalind franklin was an awesome scientist
